Breckenridge Ski Resort Terrain Parks

If you have kids or have been inspired by the high-flying acrobatics of pros like American free skier Bobby Brown, terrain parks are an integral part of skiing and snowboarding today. Breckenridge Ski Resort‘s four terrain parks give visitors and locals alike the perfect opportunity to start out new and progress through the levels or work on perfecting a trick or tricks. The four parks, located on Peaks 8 and 9, start small and end up world-class. My suggested order of progression, beginner to pro:

Trygve’s: Located on Peak 8, Trygve’s is a small park, with a combination of moderate jumps and boxes to help you get your foot in the door of terrain parks. Minimal fear factor here – wide open slope, smaller jumps, wide boxes, a great place to start.

Bonanza: Listed by Breck as their entry-level terrain park, Bonanza is located on Peak 9. Slightly bigger jumps, rails, and boxes, Bonanza is the perfect place to work on your spins and slides. Bigger and steeper than Trygve’s, not overly intimidating but not easy looking either.

Park Lane is the intermediate park, with two triple lines this year and various-sized rails, boxes, and jibs for plenty of variety. Half the fun is taking the 5 Chair to watch the action in the park. The most popular of the parks it seems, so many features that you could probably find something to try out. Big jumps are definitely intimidating looking and, in full view of the deck at Peak 8, so you have an audience. 🙂

Get your pro on at the Freeway terrain park. Four massive jumps, lots of rails and boxes, along with a 22’ super pipe will challenge you now matter what level. These are the big guns, huge pipe that is super speedy and then awe-inspiring jumbo jumps. Also in full view of the Peak 8 patio, so you better be on your A-game.

Whether you’re a first timer or budding pro, Breck’s terrain parks are a great way to expand your skiing or snowboarding repertoire. Every feature has a way around it, so if you don’t feel ready, ski around and try again the next time.
